* DumbDinos: Gwangi is of the marauding-monster variety - he leaves an elephant he kills uneaten before targeting humans.

* PrehistoricMonster: Gwangi himself, of course, but also a KidnappingBirdOfPrey Pteranodon and even the Styracosaurus hassles the humans!

The idea had already been done years earlier in the movie "The Beast of Hollow Mountain" but "Gwangi" is the better known of the two. 'Gwangi' was originally conceived by Willis O'Brien, the man who did the special effects for the original ''Film/KingKong'' movie.

''Film/KingKong1933''.



* ShoutOut: Later on, Gwangi appears not on the warpath and he scratches the side of his head, just as the Tyrannosaurus in ''KingKong'' did.

** Ray Harryhausen himself has expressed that the idea of cowboys lassoing a prehistoric monster several magnitudes larger, stronger and heavier than what those ropes should be able to hold is more than a little silly, but also provided visuals that were simply too entertaining to pass up.

* SuperPersistentPredator: Gwangi kills other dinosaurs and an elephant but leaves them to go after humans. Maybe it really was evil... Or this was based on something that [[RealityIsUnrealistic happens with real-world predators]], Gwangi saw the movement of prey animals constantly, all around him, so he kept attacking out of confusion and fear. "Didn't I kill you already?"



* SuperPersistentPredator: Gwangi is always hungry and always eating everything he sees. Especially humans!

* ArtisticLicencePaleontology: Even Harryhausen himself seemed confused as to exactly what kind of dinosaur Gwangi was supposed to be.

* TheUnreveal: The movie never explains how prehistoric creatures (from various eras separated by millions of years to boot) had survived in the valley. [[RuleOfCool Does anyone really care about finding that out?]]

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: O'Brien's original idea for the film -to be titled ''The Valley Of The Mist''- had Gwangi captured in the Grand Canyon, and killed by being pushed off a cliff with a truck.
